The Anniversary of a Sight
n That to This Day Has Not
Been Equaled.
UHchanziBg Patriotism and the Unfail
Ing Gratitude of the Irish Race
Nobly Illustrated.
The Address of Sir John Grey and
Lord Mayor's Response The
Great Procession.
The 8th of August, 1804, will long be
remembered in Ireland, and particularly
in the metropolis of Ireland, which wit
nessed a sight that has never' been
equaled. Although seventeen years had
m elapsed since the death of the liberator,
it -was not long after that the idea of
national monument, to commemorate his
great achievements, was broached.
.Dining the seventeen years that elapsed
since the death of O'Connell, the English
press asserted with more or less elabora
tion of argument and pretense of proof
that tne desire manifested by the Irish
people for a repeal of the union was but
a passing enthusiasm with which a clever
agitator had inspired them a delusion
which could not outlive his time a folly
which they had outgrown as soon as it
had ceased to be recommended to them
by the persuasive tones of the only man
who could ever have induced them to be
lieve in it.
These assertions served as a sort of ex
cuse ior me maintenance m Ireland ot a
domination against which almost the en-
. tire population protested; but their chief
purpose was to deceive foreign nations
as to the real depth and intensity of na
tional feeling. They were utterly false,
as was proven by the hundreds of thou
sands of visitors who came to Dublin to
witness the impressive ceremonies and
p.oire their fidelity to a noble principle
their adherence to the cause and rever
ence for the memory of a great man who
served their country faithfully, though
lie did not achieve the full measure of
success for which he labored.
In the honors paid to the memory of
O'Connell, the unchanging patriotism and
the unfailing gratitude of the Irish race
were nobly illustrated. They made of
that day a holiday for Ireland. They
ut aside all otlier things to take part in
movement which would show their
biding fealty to the Irish cause.
The procession, which was one of the
was composed of all classes of the people
every trades union of the city turning out
its full strength.
On the morning of thethistoric day the
trade unions of Dublin which were to
participate were assembled at their ap
pointed places, while around St. Stephen's
Green were congregated the deputations
from Galway, Limerick, Drogheda,
Navan and other cities and towns. At
10:30 the procession was fonned, the head
of which passed the residence of Daniel
The procession was headed by O'Con
nell's Body Guard, closely followed by
the stonecutters, in whose ranks was
drawn the first stone of the intended
monument, and the coachmakers, who
drew the "triumphal car" in which
O'Connell was drawn from Richmond
prison in 1844.
Passing from Merrion square, the vast
procession wound along into Clare street
and Nassau street. At the Batik at Ire'
land the greatest concourse was assent'
bled, at least 80,000 persons being con
gregated. Passing by the Exchange the
procession passed into Sackville street
(now O'Connell street). On the river,
from Carlisle bridge to the point of the
North wall and the Ringsend docks op
positc, all the vessels were dressed for
the occasion.
Arriving at the place where the monu
ment now stands, the late Sir John Grey
read the following address in the pres
ence of the Lord Mayor and other promi
nent officials: "The people of Ireland
meet to-day to honor the man whose
matchless genius won emancipation, and
whose fearless hand struck off the fetters
whereby six millions of his countrymen
were .held in bondage in their own
"Thus shall this monument teach our
children, and our childreus' children,
from generation to generation, the great
lesson of O'Connell's life. In it, so real
ized, Will be embodied, and by it will be
perpetuated, his principles and his policy,
Thus shall the noble image of our Tribune
ever speak from this platform to the Irish
race, teaching them how liberty may be
won how it may be used with most ad
vantage to all and how best and most
securely to maintain and transmit it. un
impaired and untarnished, to posterity."
To this the Lord Mayor replied: "A sor
rowing nation mourned, and still mourns,
over the grave of him whose match
less 'services and labors are recognised
throughout the civilized world, whose
teachings and principles have marked a
new era and inscribed a new chapter in
the history of mankind.
''Lifting their aspirations toward heav
en, the Irish people take heart to-day,
and, assembling as of old, proclaim to
the world that the spirit of the Great
Tribune still lives still animates their
hearts, and still guides their movements,
thus presenting a living . testimonial to
the genius, wisdom and teachings of
their illustrious liberator,
"All may' not have fully appreciated

What Is Being Done to Secure the Release
ot Irishmen Confined In British Pris
ons Their Condition.
The usual weekly meeting of the Irish
Amnesty Committee was held on Monday
evening in Dublin, Mr. Troy presiding,
Messrs. Bernitnghatn and Kelly report
ed as to their visit to Mr. Henry Wilson
in Portland jail on Thursday last. Mr,
Wilson is in fairly good health, much
better than he was, on account of being
allowed now to work in the open air. He
is to be released in November next, hav
ing spent fifteen years and six ntoiiths in
prison, the six months being extra pun
ishment fcr breaches of prison discipline,
which Mr. Wilson states was for whis
pering to his poor comrades to keep their
hearts up.
Mr. Wilson latterly complains of the
action of the Government in his case, as
it was conveyed to him two years ago by
a visitor that he would be released soon.
The Home Secretary hail promised as
much, and instead of being released, the
Government had made hint complete the
full fifteen years and an additional six
months as above stated. Mr. Wilson is
very much concerned about the men who
will be left in jail after his release.
These poor men are not in as good health
or spirits as Mr. "Wilson is, and a special
effort should be made to have them all
released at the same time, as the effect of
their comrade being gone would perhaps
be the means of addinor melancholy to
their already prolonged sufferings.
The committee having considered this
report, decided that the Home Secretary
should be written to and asked his inten
tions as to the remaining prisoners now
in Portland. If his reply is not satisfac
tory, a vigorous agitation will be com
menced for the purpose of .effecting their

The Buckingham, the People's Favorite
Amusement House, Now Open for
the Season ol 1898-99.
The Buckingham Theater, entirely re

many patrons who had during the sunt
mer months keenly felt the want
bright amusement flocked to see th
initial performance, which was Irwm
Brothers' Burlesqtters. Notwithstanding
the heat, the theater was filled at every
performance, and, truth to say, the num
her of fans and ventilators made the in
terior of the theater much cooler and
more comfortable than an ordinary room
The Buckingham Theater has for
long time been the only first-class vaude
ville house in the city, and the manage
ment has spared no efforts or expense
to maintain and surpass this standard
The house itself is conceded to be the
prettiest and best equipped in the city
and probably one of the handsomest in
the country. The bookings comprise
only the first-class combinations, and,
though they have for the past decade
been pleasing Louisville audiences, it is
promised that this season's attraction will
be far superior to nnything yet offered.
The Buckingham is under the able
management of the Whallen Brothers,
who arc members of the Empire Circuit
of vaudeville theaters.
Many of the old staff of employes are
retained for this season, among them be
ing Horace McCrocklin, the efficient
treasurer; George Lippold, whose smiling
face will be seen at the box-office, and
Charlie" Hertzman, who will be in
charge of the press advertising.
Commencing with tomorrow's matinee
the Gay Morning Glories will be seen at
the Buckingham during the coming
week. That this attraction is strictly
high-class and meritorious can be seen
from the following description:
Tile old-time first part, with its worn
gags and stereotyped songs and dances,
is eliminated from thi3 show, and in its
place will be found a number of strong
specialty acts, such as Grant and Grant,
the colored Kohinoos of rag-time songs
and melodies: Miss Liunctt Fiske, a
charming vocal star, in the latest catchy
song creations; Wills and Barren, a clever,

by a score of beautiful girls in gorgeous
array. Clever comedians will make this
a veritable laughing festival. Brilliant
scenic and electrical effects will be shown,

our national airs.
